Just replace the electrolytics with the oscons. In the kit they give you 10uf.
I suggest you put 470uf oscon. But I guess any value oscon you have will be OK.
Be sure to give it 22000uf on all rails!

Couple of my friends have Buffalo II DAC that uses ESS chip ... although I havent heard it myself Ive heard good things about it... but it depends on what system you plug it in.
I also prefer analog/less detail to digititis/fireworks detail , anytime.

Will do, i have 400.000uF in my amp ... Im sure it wont mind if I borrow some

Peace!

Hi, I've just ordered this kit, from what I hear, it's well worth taking the plunge.

Now this may be a stupid question (ahem, newbie...), but could it be converted to tube output? I've been toying with the idea building a tube DAC for a while...

Thanks.

Hi there.

Which kind of Sanyo Oscon are recommended for this DAC please?

Just ordered one too - will be fun to compare that with my Gigaworks 24/192 DAC

The NCC PSA gives a bit of a fuzzy sound in the mid bass region, and a slightly slower overall sound. The SEPC is lighning fast and crystal clear across all frequencies.

The NCC PSA is still a large step up in performance from a regular electrolytic capacitor.

Many thanks for that Erin - very helpful indeed!

These look like the correct items (much cheaper than I thought too... hope they're not fake!):

Corret ones, but those ones have very short legs and will be a pest to install. you need to get ones with long legs.

He will supply long legs if you ask, but can we be sure they're a genuine Sanyo component?
